How many of us still use the rubber band that was shipped on the tractor- holding the flip up discharge chute? I have been using mine since July when I brought the Gt5000 home. I keep meaning to go to the hardware or marine supply store to find a neat clip assembly for holding the chute up. My gate is too small for the tractor to get through unmolested with the chute down, as are my shed doors. Any ideas out there on how to make a super trick clip assembly and finally allow me to get rid of the red rubber band?
